I blogged about getting a flat tire yesterday, and on the way home I eneded up with another. Two days in a row...tons of fun. This one was my first ever puncture on a Specialized Armadillo. It was a two inch piece of steel. It looked like a spoke that was cut and slipped in there. I don't know where I picked it up. I did stop by the shop on my way home since my non drive crank arm was coming a bit loose and singing to me on the hills of my commute. When I got to the shop, one of my friends was standing there working the counter. He just started working there. We used to be couriers together, and he worked at a different shop downtown. We chatted about riding together and about some shows of his band El Toro De Oro that are coming up. I got on my way and made it home with out getting another flat.
Once I got home, I hung out with the pup and waited for Jess to get home. Once she got home, we headed up to the print shop to pick up some work and go over some other stuff we have in the works. Those guys are killing themselves with orders, but if you need shirts made, want eco-friendly shirts, and want them done well contact Jump Start Screenprinting. Enough plugging for now...
We went back to our place and just chilled the rest of the night. Jess informed me that the
I had to call my buddy Harry to make sure that we go to as many shows as we can. I think we will travel around for a few of the shows. On our list are Philly, Baltimore, NYC, NJ, Cleveland, and maybe more. Here are the dates to the GB summer tour if you want them. The ones I am thinking of going to are highlighted.

If you want any more news check out Walter's Page or Punk News. I did get to go to the first reunion last year with Black Train Jack. I blogged about it when it was announced last june.
I crashed out a little earlier than usual. Hopefully I can kick this cold, and rest up this weekend.
